Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This pork roast is so good and tender. What really makes this pork roast recipe different is the homemade sauce. It's tangy and sweet with a little bit of spice. The meat soaks up all the sauce after being cut up and infuses the flavor. This was great on a bun with a side of coleslaw, but the meat is so good it can be eaten without a bun. I used the traditional method and this pulled pork was perfect!
